Minnesota Genealogy Lookups

Minnesota needs volunteers to help look up genealogical information. If you have any reference material of general interest to the state - public records, items from your own family files, or materials published before 1930 (copyrights expired) - and are willing to do limited lookups for others, please email the MNGenWeb State Coordinator so your name and your reference material may be listed on this page. For materials published in 1930 or later (copyrights in effect), please refer to the USGenWeb Project's Official Copyright Policy.

When requesting a lookup of a volunteer, please follow these guidelines:

  1. Make sure MNLookup is in the subject line of your message.
  2. Put the name of the reference you are requesting in your message as the volunteer may have several references available, some which you may have already checked.
  3. Limit your request to 1 or 2 specific names with approximate dates.
  4. Don't forget to thank your volunteer for time and effort!

Email me if you are willing to be a lookup volunteer - Thanks!

I'm willing to do lookups in A. E. Strand's "A History of the Swedish-Americans of Minnesota" (published in 1910, 3 Volumes). As there is no index and entries are not in alphabetical order, I will need full name AND a location (county, or for cities whether Minneapolis, St. Paul or Duluth). The book only includes people living in 1910 unless they were historically very significant in Minnesota history. People included are either immigrants from Sweden or second generation Swedish-Americans. PLEASE put "STRAND Lookup" in your subject line -- I use spam filters. Laurie

Family History

Annie Chapirson - is willing to do look-ups in the following:
Bryan/O'Brien Family History, Genealogical Information on the BRYAN/O'BRIEN and FITZGERALD Families. It was authored by Gerry and Joseph Latterell and published in 1981. The family starts in Ireland and immigrates to Shieldsville, LeSueur County, Minnesota and then spreads all over the state although the majority of them remain in the southern and central Minnesota area. It covers 10 generations from before 1799 (the earliest recorded b/d in the book--in the third generation) thru 1981 and has between 1,211 and 1,305 people in it.

Recollections, A Cooper Family History, 1734-1996 by William N. Cooper. It covers 9 generations and 5 countries. In one of the fifth generation families 5 of 10 children immigrated from England. Two to Ontario, Canada, where they spread and eventually ended up even in some of the northern U.S. states. Two to St. Paul, Ramsey County, Minnesota. Most stayed within the 7 county metro area, although they also spread to Florida, Arizona Washington state and California. One immigrated to Australia. This book has been set up with references, shows where documentation was found, and also has an excellent index. It also has a library catalog number:

Canada

I recently found out that my great great grandfather who immigrated to Mount Forest Ontario, Canada from Ireland about 1839, left to settle in Manannah Twp. Meeker County, Minnesota sometime around 1877-1880. Many other Irish Catholics from this area also left and settled in the above mentioned area of the U.S.A. these people often started families here. I have the births and marriages and sometimes deaths of family members of the families who left this area. Our church records start in 1856. If you have any members of these families who want assistance with their early family tree information, you can contact me. I have been allowed to photo-copy all the Catholic records of this area and am prepared to assist if possible. Thank You , Bob McIntee

I have the new atlas for Germany. It is in great detail, and has 90,000 towns and villiages indexed. It is only a map of current Germany, but I would be willing to do lookups for people. It has been very helpful in finding those small towns. It also gives the new postalcodes. Darcy Fritche

I have a book called Chronik Der Gemeinde Rosport by Jos Krippes. This German text includes Housenames, family names, & marriage information back to the 1700s. An Index of names make easy lookups although translation is not very easy for me-I usually use a web-translation site for help. I may be willing to do some lookups if not too time consuming.

The Telemark area covering Hjartdal, Sauland & Tuddal.
Norway: Telemark Hjartdalsoga, 4 Volumes.
Band I - Tuddal; Band II - Sauland; Band IIIA & IIIB - Hjartdal

directly from Norway.
These books were written by Gjertrud Kleveland Karsrud, published in 1992.
The books are written in Norwegian and I can translate most of it.  The main information given in the books are dates, names, farm names and places.

Neil Hofland's Ardal Bygdebok. The Ardal Bygdebok, a record of almost 17,000 people has been translated and compiled by Neil Hofland into database. It includes all those who ever lived in Ardal, Sogn & Fjordane, Norway, plus their descendants through 1985.  You may contact Neil Hofland about your Ardal ancestors as he has offered to do limited lookups in his Ardal database.  
Read more about Aardal and Mr. Hofland.  
***An update (7/11/03) for the Årdal genealogical database:
I have been adding descendants of the emigrants as find them. There are now 28,458 individuals in the database. I am still looking for more. Some of the contacts have come from this site. Neil Hofland - also is willing to do other look-ups for Norwegian heritage researchers. He writes, "I have all but 4 of the about 90 books published by NAHA plus a smattering of other Minnesota history books, including Folwell's 4 volume History of Minnesota published  back in the 1920's by the Minnesota Historical Society." The Folwell volumes are really full of obscure footnotes. Folwell lived in Minnesota for most of the history to the 20's and personally knew most of the people he wrote about and was at many of the important events.


Neil Hofland - also has completed a genealogical database for Lærdal as well. I loaded the 4 volumes of the Lærdal bygdebok that are complete into a PAF database. The fifth and final volume will be out in a couple years or so, and I will add that as well. I am also collecting descendants of the emigrants and entering them. There are now 23,015 individuals and it is growing.
Steven R. Moen - says, "I am willing to do lookups in the Leikanger (Sogn og Fjordane) bygdebok. A large number of Minnesotans (I believe) have ancestors from this particular area of Norway."

Sweden

Link to a Swedish Genealogy and History Page.
I have a homepage about Swedish Genealogy. It is called “Hans Högman's Genealogy and History Page”. The page has been on the Internet since 1996 and most of the pages are translated into English. The homepage has also a lot of information about Swedish History and especially Swedish Military History where I have a great deal of material about the Allotment System (the old system of organizing and financing the Swedish Armed Forces). When you do genealogical research on Swedish ancestors you will sooner or later find an ancestor who served in the military forces. To help the non-Swedish spoken genealogist I have a page called “Find Your Ancestors in the Swedish Military Sources”. It is very important to know how the Swedish Allotment System worked in order to research the soldiers. Therefore I have a page explaining the Allotment System.   The URL to my homepage is: http://www.algonet.se/~hogman/slaekt.htm
Examples of articles on my homepage:
Swedish naming practices in earlier times.
History and organization of the Church of Sweden
Old Swedish measurements and weights
Land ownership in earlier times - farmers and Crofters
Swe/Eng dictionay, Genealogy terms
A summary of the Allotment System
Swedish Military Research a guide to the military sources
The many Swedish wars

Teri Cleaveland - writes, "I have a book that many Minnesotans might be interested. Book on Swedish families: Den Sagen-om-Spunna Slakten by Jan Vegelius. A book on the descendants of the children of Per Persson Bagenholm. There are almost 800 pages of families. Many are already here in the USA, more are still in Sweden. Most of the book is in Swedish, but I am willing to try to do look ups in the book. Per Persson Bagenholm was born in 1717 and was a member of Parliment, Gaserud, Habol. The book also has his tree back to 1365."
Thomas Sverker - writes, "I'm willing to help people with contacts if they are descending from Hälsingland in Sweden. My special area is around Hudiksvall, a parish called Hälsing-Tuna. My project in this parish is to find everything there is in all sources about the people and the farms in Hälsingtuna in the period of 1500-1800. When it comes to Hälsingland thera are a lot of family-books made for about 20 parishes (Most of them made 1960-1970 by a man called K J Nilson). They include a lot of information for people living there in the year 1500-1950:ies. Warning the information for the period 1500-1650 are not to be trusted.........
Tommy Andersson - is willing to do lookups in his own material concerning Västerbotten and Norrbotten. He writes, "The material is huge, I have access to all church records in the Northern part of Sweden (Norrland), I have also compiled a couple of family registers in many counties (socken) for example  Bygdeå, Umeå, Burträsk, Lövånger and Skellefteå in Västerbotten, Nederkalix,Överkalix and Råneå in Norrbotten. The period I am talking about is 1500-1920. I also have copies of letters and deeds from the medievals."
Carl Spalde - is willing to help people with research if they are descending from two parishes, Bokenaes and/or Dragsmark, in Bohuslaen, Sweden.
Kjell Nordqvist -writes, "KARLSKOGA Does this place-name sound familiar to you? Karlskoga is a Swedish city (32000 inhab.) about halfway between Stockholm and Oslo. More than 5000 people emigrated from here to America between 1849 (the goldrush in California) and 1935. Our Heritage Society has an emigrant section in its archives, and we are steadily working with emigrant research. If you have roots here, please let us hear from you. Write to Hembygdsforeningen, Torget 10, 691 31 Karlskoga, or send e-mail to kjell.nordqvist@karlskoga.mail.telia.com We are anxious to hear the story of your emigrated forefathers and get copies of obituaries, citizenship papers, travel documents, pictures etc. for our emigrant records. In return we may have material that is of interest to you. Eigrantregistret in Karlstad was founded in 1960. They have registered all emigrated va:rmlanders (ab. 125.000)and created the data base of the more than 1.2 million emigrants who sailed from Swedish ports. Look at http://www.genealogi.se/emigrant.htm (under ROTTER)."
John Sandh  -  I have a genealogical database for Skelleftea in Vasterbotten, Sweden. There I have collected birth, marriage and deaths during the period of 1700-1935. There are now 55.000 individuals and it's growing.  I'm am also willing to do lookups concerning emigration to Canada and USA. I have access to church records for all parts of Sweden. I could get copies and scan obituaries, birth-, death-, marriage, citizenship papers, travel documents, etc.  June 2007
